Eli Gerzon is State Divestment Organizer at Better Future Project/350 Massachusetts. His work focuses on divesting the state pension fund from fossil fuels through grassroots organizing. Before this, he ran an ultra-low-carbon landscaping business on his bicycle for 11 years. Much of his life has focused on world travel and he founded Worldschool Travel Tours for teens to Mexico and Japan. His vision was that travel experiences would develop leaders and lead to change in the world. Soon it became clear that more direct action and organizing was needed given the urgency of the climate crisis and other injustices.
